Earlier I mentioned that several hundred, if not thousand, elementary school children were at the gardens during our visit . . .

We thought we were being smart by going on a Friday cause ‘everyone would be in school’–ha!
If you’ve ever lived overseas and taught English in Asia you’ll know exactly what it’s like to hear “HOLLOW! HOLLOW!” screamed at you several thousand times as kids flood around you in little mobs checking out the E.T.’s (English Teacher aka Extraterrestrial) . . .
And we thought we were being ‘smart’ by going on a weekday to miss the ‘crowds’ . . .
